I've come to realise that life is a series
of false expectations which we chase
in the hope that we may reach them,
like traveling on an escalator
they travel from a constant distance
at the same pace as me.
It's quite depressing to think
that I have so many years to come
of the same fruitless following,
and I will never reach anything
or be of any more worth.
Almost 21 and I might as well be dead.
